Taking the trip back to Martha's Vineyard three times in nine months, WOW! A cultural, serene and transcendent experience it was for me to meet/greet the Ho'kulea Malama Honua Voyage. With Uncle Sam Low, local author/film
Alright folks, here it is as the Hokule'a Crew arrives on the shores of Martha's Vineyard June 28, 2016. Three great days to start off the town's festivities with greetings from the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe Massachusetts
How cool is that as teachers in Edgartown, Massachusetts encouraged their students to create an art project map involving tracking status of the Hokule'a voyage on the East Coast. As a matter of fact the Hokule'a voyage crew will be arriving on the shores of Martha's Vineyard late June/early July. I hear some ukulele strummers and the communities close by, will welcome the HAWAIIANS with open arms. I think I need to show up for this meet and greet if at all possible as I LOVE THE EAST COAST~aloha lives there too! (photos soon)
A great story created by Jack London, directed by Gary Kubota, Monte Scott Perez and actor Moronai Kanekoa. It was heartwarming, touching and brilliant! True story of hawaiian cowboy Kaluaiko'olau and his right to protect his family against political outlaws while facing his son's leprosy ailment and eventually his own fate.

Mahalo piha Gary, Monte and ONIPAA.org for this well shared brave performance. (photos/soon to be posted)
